The doctrine of imputation is ground in which salvation is rooted and centers around the three great 'assignments' of the Bible—Adam's original sin ascribed to mankind, the sins of God's people ascribed to Christ, and Christ's righteousness ascribed to all of his people.
This doctrine often seems superfluous or splitting hairs, and yet, without it, redemption automatically becomes reliant on our own works and assurance of salvation is suddenly not so sure. In Death in Adam, Life in Christ, the first study in the Reformed Exegetical Doctrinal Studies series, J.V. Fesko eloquently and systematically works through this doctrine, examining its long history in the church, its exegetical foundation, and its dogmatic formulation. In exploring imputed guilt from the First Adam alongside the imputed righteousness from the Second, this volume offers a helpfully well-rounded explanation of the doctrine.

"Conversations over imputation are rarely informed by the history of interpretation. Fesko introduces us to seminal figures in this development and no engagement with original sin or justification should overlook his careful spade work."
—Michael Horton, J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California, Escondido, California
"In classic Reformed fashion, and with grace and style, John Fesko brings confessional exposition, historical survey, and exegesis together in what is sure to become the standard Reformed work on Imputation for generations to come."
—Brian Vickers, Professor of New Testament Interpretation and Biblical Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky
